About the event

The story of five people from Norwich with little or no connection with each other, whose lives overlapped and linked in many ways.  More than that, their stories form a backdrop to a century or more of the history of Norwich.  It was a time when the city would often find itself in the national press, in no small part because of one or more of these five people.

Local author Pete Goodrum takes a fresh look at their stories.  Pete is a Norwich man.  He has had a successful career in advertising agencies, working on national and international campaigns, and now works as an advertising writer and consultant.  Pete is also a successful author and several of his books have topped the local best seller charts.  His latest work is ‘Jarrold 250 Years. A History’.  The book was published to celebrate the anniversary and instantly became another number one.

He has more books due out and has recently appeared on stage with Stephen Bumfrey in a ‘live’ version of their BBC Radio show.  A podcast is also in the planning.   Pete also writes and presents TV documentaries, and he’s  a much in demand public speaker.
